More information about this loan

On Friday November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan made its way through Southeast Asia, causing substantial damage to homes and businesses in areas of the Philippines. Given the state of devastation following this storm, borrowers living and working in these areas may have difficulty making repayments on their loans, thus making their Kiva loans higher risk. More information >>

This loan is designed for borrowers living in an underserved region of the Philippines, where the poverty rate is high and microfinance services are scarce. Kiva loans help NWTF expand its presence in the area, where it also offers workshops for clients on idea generation and training in technical, business and marketing skills.
